Richard Lugala said clashes took place in Logo boma on Saturday.

He said the displaced people urgently need food, shelter and water.

The local official also appealed to humanitarian agencies operating in the county to intervene and assist those displace in the clashes.

One of the areas badly affected by South Sudan’s civil war, Yei has witnessed human rights violations and massive displacement since 2016.

Africa’s newest nation descended into a civil war in mid-December 2013 when Kiir accused his former deputy-turned rebel leader for plotting a coup.

In September last year, however, the South Sudanese arch-rivals signed a revitalized peace agreement to end the country’s civil war that has killed tens of thousands of people and displaced millions.

    Who said peace had returned to Equatoria or specifically Yei River State? Fellow Equatorians, as long as SSDinka Forces and settlers still roam out holy lands, our gallant forces must hunt them down. Our citizens must keep off and wait till the work is complete. Under NO circumstances must jienges be allowed to control YRS. We must for economic and strategic reasons control our own borders. Good w

          JJ Luka or Jinga Jienge Luka
          You already have feace in Bahr el Gajal, so just go ahead and leave NAS to clear out suspected jienge nyor, cassava and chicken thieves. Again read the nassouthsudan.com link and you will see. Fugitive Malong is irrelevant and has no strategic importance. His cowardly child soldiers are incomparable to NAS. One jienge nyor, one bullet. Period. Case closed. Next
